After all these are the folks with the link juice.
Im trying to brainstorm and come up with a strategy to razor target other bloggers in my niche.
I figure if I do the research and find out what they read, where they get their news, where they hang out etc and put position myself in these places then perhaps I can get their attention.
Both of these will encourage them to come and visit you and if they like what they see they may subscribe, and then maybe they will be inspired what you write to write a post, and link back.
What I like to do is jump on a news tidbit as fast as I can, then alert niche bloggers through e-mail about the news at hand. Bloggers are always looking for something to blog about. If you provide them with some hot scoop and the URL of your post, chances are pretty big that they will blog about it and include a URL to your site as 'source'.
All that other stuff you're doing is wonderful, but boils down to being an excuse for people too chicken to ask for links.
Works for me. Gotta like this answer. You will literally be amazed at how well the direct approach actually works in your favor. Ive learned this lesson many times over already. The world is full of squirrely vague people. Most folks find directness refreshing. I do.
Just my 2 cents.
It's kind of like meeting girls in a bar. You can't just sit in the corner and wait for them to approach you. You may get shot down in flames in few times with a direct approach but you will end up with some new prospects at the end of the night.
most bloggers have twitter accounts. follow them, interact with them, ask them for a link.
